Nathan Fillion recently did an interview with The Hollywood Reporter’s Marc Bernardin and the thing that’s so cool about it is that you can totally tell that Nathan’s as excited to be a geek as we are to geek out over him.

You can read the interview in the August 1st THR issue but, in the meantime, you can check out a teaser video after the break and see Nathan all dressed up as Captain Kirk.

1a00_st_original_series_hoodie

ThinkGeek’s TNG Uniform hoodies were so popular that they are boldly going back to the original series for a new round of designs. From the product page:

Each Star Trek The Original Series Uniform Hoodie is as perfect as we could make it – teaming up with the folks at CBS, of course. There are three styles (each with a specific Rank Braid). Here’s the rank breakdown: Command Gold is Captain, Sciences Blue is Commander, and Engineering Red is Lieutenant. No Lieutenants were harmed during the making of these Star Trek The Original Series Uniform Hoodies… promise.

This full-zip hoodie is an officially-licensed Star Trek clothing item. It’s made of 60% cotton / 40% polyester. The colors are pieced together, not printed on. It has two front pockets and embroidered insignia and rank braid.

A release date for the hoodies hasn’t been announced, but they’ll be priced at $59.99.

trek tote

Totes and purses come in all shapes and sizes, but it’s not always easy to find the geek style and theme that fit you best.

I highly recommend checking out BrookVanGoryDesigns.

From diaper bags to clutches, she’s got a little something for every situation, and most of them are available for custom ordering. That means you can get a Trek hobo bag and a Star Wars diaper bag and have the best of both worlds.

Head after the break to see more of our favorites.

Benedict Cumberbatch is perfect–everyone knows that. But do you know why he’s so perfect? He was born in a hidden field behind a crystal cave and a magical waterfall. Yep, that’s right, Benedict Cumberbatch is not like you or me: he’s actually a CumberBatch Kid!

Kirk was here cosplay

Being pregnant can spark ideas for some creative costumes, but I think this is one of my favorites. Captain Kirk is known for getting around, and he seems to have an affinity for green-skinned alien females. Needless to say, this is a brilliant idea.

Send your cosplay pics to tips@fashionablygeek.com.

borg eye patch 3

Joining the ranks of Star Trek’s Borg might not seem so bad if you get a snazzy eye patch in return. Atomic Girl made this robotic-looking accessory from resin. Each eye patch is finished with metallic paints and lacquer. While they’re suited for a Borg, they’d add a touch of awesome to just about any costume. The design would especially complement a steampunk ensemble.

See some close-ups of the eye patch after the break.

This absolutely wonderful Star Trek Galileo Shuttlecraft necklace is the latest by Paul Michael Design. We’ve featured many of his nerdy jewelry designs in the past, and he shows no signs of slowing down. The shuttle opens like a locket to reveal six gems to represent the passengers in either yellow, blue, or red. You get to pick which colors you want in your shuttle, but better not pick too many redshirts or the whole thing will go down in flames.

Patch

We already knew that ISS Commander Steve Swanson was a bit of a sci-fi nerd thanks to the Firefly and Star Trek shirts he wore in the first Instagrams from space. Now we’re learning that he even hoped to have a little sci-fi in the official Expedition 40 crew patch. According to an interview with his wife on collectspace:

[He] collaborated with his daughter to create an insignia for the outpost’s Expedition 40 crew. What he and his fellow astronauts and cosmonauts ultimately launched with to the space station was a patch depicting the “past, present, and future of human space exploration.”
What Swanson had first proposed however, was a badge of a decidedly different type.

“He wanted something that was kind of badass,” revealed Mary Swanson, Steve’s wife, in a call with collectSPACE, “and Klingons are kind of badass.”

Yes, Klingons are most definitely badass and it would have been a pretty incredible patch had it passed muster and become official.

See a close-up of the Klingon “Brotherhood of the Sword” patch, Swanson’s design and the final patch design after the break.

doctor who picardo

Sitting around and thinking of people who can play The Doctor is just one of those things we geeks like to do. Speculation and suggestions are fun and, considering The Doctor does regenerate, we know he (or she) can end up being played by anyone.

Here’s a suggestion we came across. As John at Neatorama said, “Robert Picardo, who played the Doctor on Star Trek: Voyager, would do an excellent job of playing the Doctor on Doctor Who. He has no name and already has the job title!”

He also has the t-shirt apparently.
